Dilly beans are similar to pickles but with a different texture. They are a tasty side to barbeques and especially delicious when served ice-cold on a warm summer day.

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4


  1. Destem green beans and pack into jars, allowing 1½ inches of headspace.
  2. To each jar add ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 clove garlic, and 1 head dill.
